Quiet suggestion:

Maybe better is to get rid of the X version variables? Append -EXPORTS
to everything that exports, and generate the genksyms food from:

$(patsubst %.o-EXPORTS,%.c, $(filter %-EXPORTS, $(OBJS))

And the link line from:

$(patsubst %-EXPORTS, %, $(OBJS))

This allows complete control over the link order.
Hacking time.
